Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
We've printed for years using gallon jugs of waste toner nabbed from Quick Print Shop* dumpsters. We just pop the white plug on our cartriges, fold a paper plate into 4ths, snip the tip to make a funnel, and dump it in a half cup at a time!
*Names changed, LOL

I just emptied the cyan waste cartridge of our HP COlor LaserJet CM1312nfi and was considering reusing the toner, but can see that the color of the used toner is dramatically darker than the new toner. I believe when the residue is on the drum, before being swept, it is lightly 'burned' and therefore darkened. I now understand why you can reuse toner from the Black toner waste cartridge, because it doesn't matter the color. I would imagine you might be able to use the color, too, but the final colors would be duller than using fresh. I also think someone should remind toner recyclers to use caution when refilling as the toner in it's powdered state is very unhealthy. I believe toner dust has been classified by the FDA a class-A carcinogen. Use a mask, wipe down loose particles using a dust cloth & wash hands after! Good luck all!
